Nokia may reveal a new storytelling app at its upcoming Nokia World event.

An image leaked by known leaker @evleaks shows an app called Storyteller. Based on the name and the image, the app seems to be a way to organize your photos based on different themes and events, thus creating a story.

A Shared link in the image indicates that you'd be able to share your photo-based story with other people. A Timeline link opens up the idea of seeing your photos based on date, while a Places link would likely arrange them based on location.

The tweet mentions "Sirius" and "Bandit," the alleged codenames for Nokia's upcoming tablet and 6-inch smartphone, implying that the app may be included on both devices. That would also mean the app would be available for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

Nokia World will take place in Abu Dhabi on October 22 .
